Link to Hal Higdon training site is here which has training programs for all levels, or to the Nike 10k Training plan found here.



The 3k will start at the north end of Riverside Park and wind our way south before turning towards the river and following the path along the river back up to the finish line.  A great setting for an awesome 3k.


The 9k will start at the north end of Riverside Park and head north, crossing to the other side of the Grand River to Fifth Third ballpark before turning back south and heading to the finish line.  Should be some pretty good vistas along the way. Link to the course map can be found here.
